This may be my second (technically 3rd, though my last one didn't last long) pregnancy, but this is the first time I've really experienced pregnancy symptoms at this point. I had a few mild ones before- a bit of fatigue and heartburn, for example- but nothing really worth noting. This pregnancy, however, has been SO different from the very beginning, it's crazy. The truth is, it's been a "rough" (relatively. It's been hard for me, but I'm a wimp!) one, but I'm really enjoying it. Even though I'm often miserable and exhausted, that can be explained by all the extra stuff going on (being in Japan for so long, buying a new house, moving, raising the preschooler and helping her adjust to the new house...). And the pregnancy symptoms themselves, even when hard to handle, fascinate me and just make me even more thankful that, against all odds, I somehow managed to get pregnant and still am...
So, due to all this sentimental mushiness I'm feeling, I want to hear about everyone's symptoms- good and bad! Let's all celebrate and commiserate how these babies are making us feel.
As for me, I'm dealing with heartburn. It comes and goes, and is never really bad, but it is really annoying. And my boobs often feel like they will explode. I'm getting random headaches, backaches, and my hips hurt. I think I'm starting to get BH, and those are odd. Baby boy is getting strong, and his movements often feel very odd, and sometimes even hurt! Still, I love it and am pretty much obsessed with feeling / watching him move. I feel like I'm constantly hungry, but am getting to the point where I can't eat too much at once. And the exhaustion!! Oh man, I am so tired. And of course, can't sleep, both due to the 4 year old and the pregnancy, and my own natural insomnia.
That probably sounds like a lot of complaining, but really, if I had nothing I had to do, it wouldn't be bad. If I could just get a full, uninterrupted night's sleep, I'd be pretty well off!
How's everyone else feeling?
